I am not sure but looks like a newer version available for download. I am sorry if it's wrong.

Please add to dependencies: linux-headers

Although perhaps obvious, it's handy.

This driver was working great until I updated my system last week. Oddly, the driver now functions like the default open source drivers in the kernel. Speeds are slow, connections drop out, etc. I've verified the module is loaded and the kernel drivers are blacklisted.

I can't recall exactly how behind I was. A good guess would be 4 - 6 months.

@joanmanel the only changes in the package are the name and the linux-headers requirements, maybe are a kernel version or other package upgrade.

I have horrible lag with this package that I didn't have with dkms-8192cu just a few weeks ago before you changed it.

I am using this adapter: Edimax EW-7811UN 150Mbps Wireless Nano USB Adapter

As said, I have horrible lag while playing. Usually every 5 second my game freezes for 1. The speed test gives me all perfect, and while surfing the web and doing stuff all goes smooth. If I use wired connection instead, I have no lag, so it only happens using WI-FI. On Windows 8 the wifi goes perfect, so it's not the adapter being damaged, or the router or whatever, it is just this new package.

The discussion, about including or not linux-headers as a dependencies, in a dkms package should happen on the AUR mailing list. Otherwise each package will came up with a different solution.
I think that, for the moment, we should follow what is written in the wiki ( which is not including linux-headers as a dependencie because dkms already lists it as an optional one.

I have to disagree about not including linux-headers in the depends.
First, any custom kernel also provides linux-headers. If you installed a custom kernel in a arch-linux way (i.e. make install), then this configuration is not supported in ANY way since pacman does not track the files anymore and all the problems that come with that should be on you. Also this package is used not just custom kernel users.

For update with the new package name, you should install the new 8192cu-dkms and automatically replace the old dkms-8192cu.

Hello, new version with removed linux-headers as depend and changed name to adopt de dkms guidelines.
